The film and television industry depends increasingly on complex technology, and technology depends on technicians who often have to spend long hours in dark laboratories, or darkened editing and dubbing suites, or preview theatres, or simply waiting about on location or film sets. Long periods of relative inaction, followed by short bursts of tense, creative activity are the lot of many programme makers and technicians, and crews in particular can spend long periods away from home on major features. Prompted by the interest in medical imaging based on computer graphics (referred to elsewhere in this issue) we asked Sarah Cowley, a Health Visitor with the Eastbourne Health Authority, to write a no-nonsense guide to good health for people with jobs in film and television which particularly involve long hours in sedentary occupations.
